This is the metallic blue HX1005 version with electroplated red metal parts such as the barrel and hammer mechanism. These innovative serrated "split slide" pistols have less slide to move back so the trigger response is faster and it takes less gas giving you more shots between refills. You'll be picking off targets at your next IPSC match or skirmish with ease. There are many other refinements like the metal striker head.
Based around the 1911 it has the beaver-tail grip safety, authentic hammer action, trigger, locking topslide and correct external catches all made from high grade steel. The base of the hand grip is flared with a metal surround, this not only balances it nicely but also creates a funnelling effect so mags can be guided into the well at rapid speed. You can use WE magazines, the internals are green gas friendly. This pistol is also duel power compatible so you can use Co2 capsules instead of gas power just by using a Co2 mag (available separately). This is a quality item that Armourer Works have spent significant time improving every detail, inside and out.
It is recommended that the airsoft gas you use contains silicone oil, this will prevent the rubber seals on the valves drying out. An occasional drop of silicone oil directly onto the magazine's valves is also a good idea.
As this item requires gas to fire BB, we've put together a discounted bundle that includes a large canister of green gas and 5000 ultra grade 0.20g BB. The gas usually sells for £8.99 and the ammo for £7.95 but you can get both for £10 if you purchase them with the gun, just choose that option in the drop down menu, next to the product picture.
